Panel Event on Team-Based Care to Include WAPA President-Elect
Monday, November 14, 2016
Wisconsin Health News is hosting a panel discussion on December 6th on scope of practice, team-based care and the future healthcare workforce. WAPA's President-Elect, Eric Elliot, is among the panelists invited to participate in the event.
The federal health reform law has ushered in a new wave of patients. Meanwhile, the state could face a shortfall of more than 4,000 doctors by 2035, and a 35 percent gap between the demand for nurses and the actual supply by 2040.
So, who is going to take care of all these new patients? How will primary care be delivered in the future? In what areas does it make sense to expand the scope of practice? Where does it not?
A panel of experts will tackle these questions and more during a Wisconsin Health News Panel Dec. 6 at the Madison Club.
Panel participants will include:
- Dr. Dave Clemens, President-Elect, Wisconsin Dental Association
- Gina Dennik-Champion, Executive Director, Wisconsin Nurses Association
- Eric Elliot, President-Elect, Wisconsin Academy of Physician Assistants
- Linda Jorgenson, Former President, Wisconsin Dental Hygienists Association
- George Quinn, Executive Director, Wisconsin Council on Medical Education and Workforce
- Steve Rush, Vice President, Workforce and Clinical Practice, Wisconsin Hospital Association
- Dr. Ken Schellhase, President-Elect, Wisconsin Academy of Family Physicians
